Finishing up a Miss Canada Sr.  to use for old time fuselage for FAC. What would you all recommend for a prop/motor?

The plans don’t suggest a motor size. When I measure the prop diameter off of the plan it comes out 10 inches which seems a bit small.

Thanks!

Found what I needed in previous posts. Should have thought to use the search function first!

After finding a previous discussion, decided to start out with a 10 inch prop and 5 loops of 1/8 rubber.

Here is the completed model. Waiting for a calm day to trim it!

That is a good approach to begin with. Eventually you will want more loops. Did you find the list of Old Timers motors used done by Gene Wallock a few years ago? How many of the old timers will you be flying?  Good first choice btw.

Do you live in Texas? Sure hope so.

I just located the list on the SAM website.  He recommends using 12 strands of 1/8th wide rubber and he suggests making up the motor  42 inches long. His list is used by a lot of people at least for a point to start with.

Good Luck

Brilliant! I should put Snidley Whiplash in mine since the fuselage is black!

Flew Miss Canada yesterday with the 10 in prop and 5 loops of 1/8 inch rubber. Wanted to go left initially but with right thrust managed to get a decent right climb and cruise. Tilted the stab to get a left glide. Only managed 54 seconds.
Will try a bigger prop and motor next time.
Working on putting Snidley Whiplash at the controls fir the next session!  Cheesy

Sounds like a great start.  If you catch any wind I bet it flys awhile.  I put a DT on just in case.
